The VPN VM does not need to be allowed to do DNS.  You can set an IP in
its configuration and then no DNS is needed.

I will expand the instructions to indicate that.

No.  The DNS requests of the chained AppVMs are routed to the DNS
servers declared by the VPN server.  The DNS requests of the VPN VM
itself are routed to the DNS servers of the NetVM that is upstream of
the VPN VM.

No reason.  I will clarify that there's no need to do that.
